You'll want to save these postures.
Sometimes in a Yoga Nidra session, you might find yourself fidgeting or getting uncomfortable from laying down for a long period of time. Depending on what you did before the class, past injuries, or your surroundings; laying down might not work for you. Meeting yourself where you're at is key and that's why I suggest trying these 5 postures next time you're in a Yoga Nidra session.
Supported Fetal Posture
Roll over to your side and pull your knees toward your chest. Place one pillow between your knees, one under your top arm, and one under your head. Place something over the eyes to block out any light and grab a blanket to get yourself snug.
Supported Savasana 1
Find a comfortable surface to lay under (bed or yoga mat) and place one pillow under the knees and the other under your head. Get something to block out the light and place it over your eyes. Using a blanket over the body is always recommended.
Supported Savasana 2
In this second version of supported Savasana, blocks and a blanket are used as extra props to get you comfortable. While laying down, place the blocks in a T like shape: the back block is on its highest setting with the second block on its middle height. Take your bolster and place it at an incline of 45 degrees against the blocks. Place a folded up blanket under the head for extra support. Take a pillow under the knees, something to place over the eyes, and a blanket to get cozy.
Supported Savasana 3
In the third version of Supported Savasana, it is similar to Supported Savasana 2 with more props. While laying down, place the blocks in a T like shape: the back block is on its highest setting with the second block on its middle height. Take your bolster and place it at an incline of 45 degrees against the blocks. Place a folded up blanket under the head for extra support. Take a pillow under the knees, feet, and one under each arm. Lastly, place something over the eyes and a blanket to keep you warm.
Find a wall to rest against as you grab your props. Place one pillow under your glutes and knees. Then, grab two large pillows: one under each armpit. Lastly, roll up a blanket to go behind the neck so that you can rest the back of your skull against the wall. You can grab a blanket to place over the body as well as an extra pillow under the feet for extra comfort.
